“Mythomane’s Truth,” Poetry by Sanjeev Sethi

“Mythomane’s Truth,” Poetry by Sanjeev Sethi
Mythomane’s Truth 
If we could retrofit ourselves? 
I would not be me nor you, you. 
Imagine me without infirmities.  
I would no longer be po-faced, 
pudgy and potbellied. My eyes 
wouldn’t swim sans Adam’s ale. 
If any of this gladdens your gut:   
I reckon, you aren’t for me. 


From entanglements of existence  
I’m in firmament of my own.  
In roll-call of needs anamnesis  
mitigates. Past is polished with  
coats of one’s inner complexion.  
Peeps are like diaries different  
page different piece: same smell. 


When you unself  
from a situation or skein:  
you deliver lavish  
dividends for yourself. 
Opportune distancing  
mends the ache:  
of the eventualities 
of our exploits. 
Propinquity bedims  
the perspective: 
leaving us to lust  
after our parakeet or pelt.
